Double Apricot Bread -1 lb Bread Machine Recipe

This Double Apricot Bread is a great way to use up some extra dried apricots. It's fragrant and slightly sweet, and perfect toasted with some peanut butter for breakfast:@) This is a hybrid recipe, I started with my favorite Panettone and added elements from Hodgson Mill's Absolutely Apricot Bread. I love these recipes that call for an egg, they really make a nice hearty loaf of bread. Don't hesitate to give this a try folks, I think you'll like it!
 In case you're wondering, yep, I am still loving my mini one pound Zojirushi bread machine. 
I use it at least every other week and some times twice a week!

1 lb Double Apricot Bread for Bread Machine
1/2 C water
2 Tblsp butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 C + 2 Tblsp A/P flour-might need a little more
2 Tblsp apricot jam
2 Tblsp powdered milk
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

generous 1/2 C dried apricots, rough chopped
  1. Add everything to pan of bread maker (except apricots) in order given. 
  2. Press light setting. Look at the dough after it's been mixed a couple minutes, add a little more flour if it isn't making a nice smooth ball.
  3. Add apricots at beep.
  4. Pour a cuppa, enjoy the fragrance and love life:@)


  1. I would love this bread with the bits of apricot Lynn!

  2. The flavors in this bread sound heavenly, Lynn, with the vanilla and almond extracts and the nutmeg. I'll bet it's wonderful toasted!

  3. I love apricot recipes! There's always a bit more science involved with fruit breads, and your recipe looks like it handles the moisture issue quite well- looking forward to trying this one out:)

  4. Hi Lynn! Thanks for adding this to the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop! I used to live in Philly!! I was in Roxborough :) This bread looks incredible! I don't use a bread machine, but I'd love to try making this by hand. Apricots are so tasty. Pinning for later :D

  5. Oh yum, I haven't had anything apricot in forever! Looks/sounds so good!

  6. All of these people raving about this recipe haven't as yet made it. Your comments aren't helpful, I am trying to make it right now and the proportion of flour to liquid ingredients are remarkably off. I am getting a soupy mixture to which I keep having to add more flour and more flour . . . and I won't go on.

    1. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble.


Thank you for stopping by!
